Lisa Rimpf
Research Engineer II
The Babcock & Wilcox Company
Charlotte, NC


“I would advise any individual considering a career in research or manufacturing to never stop learning, and to listen to everyone involved in all facets of these areas, from concept to delivery.  The most successful projects are realized when varied perspectives, concerns and ideas are taken into consideration.”

Lisa is at the forefront of the study and application of carbon capture processes for boilers used by utilities and industries to generate steam power to meet the world’s growing energy needs. Her work to evaluate post-combustion carbon dioxide (CO2) capture processes has been instrumental in proving and expanding the viability of diverse energy sources while protecting the environment.
 
In 2007, The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W) inaugurated a state-of-the-art Research Center, where Lisa and her team accelerated B&W’s work to investigate regenerable solvents. Lisa participated in all aspects of procurement, construction, commissioning and operation of this cutting-edge research facility, and was instrumental in identifying equipment needed to evaluate developmental CO2 scrubbing agents in its laboratories.
 
Lisa’s detailed quantitative and qualitative performance analysis made her a key driver to achieve project objectives. She also was instrumental in leading the implementation of the program’s environmental, health and safety practices, including HAZOP, personal protective equipment assessments, and chemical disposal considerations.  In addition, she frequently leads tours of the Research Center for customers, visitors and employees, showcasing the facility’s capabilities and projects.
